Hey Light

Thanks for the great list...much listening to do...but I think i'll star with those less atonal '68 suggestions. What's great is that no matter how you like your Dark Stars there are plenty of variations to choose from.

GC,

I second Light's nomination for 10-12-68, the whole first set is unbelievable. Go with the Charlie Miller transfer:

Also if you have a copy of Live Dead check out the Dark Star from 2-27-69. Unfortunately you can't stream that show any longer because the MOTM and prelude that lead to the DS are beautiful. The 2-22-69 that Light linked is also very nice as is the DS.
